Description - Making Lahore Modern by William J. Glover
Fifty years after the British annexed the Punjab and made Lahore its provincial capital, the city-once a prosperous Mughal center that had long since fallen into ruin-was transformed. British and Indian officials had designed a modern, architecturally distinct city center adjacent to the old walled city, administered under new methods of urban governance. Offering an in-depth study of a single provincial city, Glover reveals that urban change in colonial India was not a monolithic process and establishes Lahore as a key site for understanding the genealogy of modern global urbanism.
